Expert Review

By Kelley Blue Book Editorial Staff

You'll Like The 2011 Cadillac CTS-V If...

Cadillac was once the "Standard of the World," which was more than an advertising slogan. The competition is much deeper, wider and stronger today, but if you would like an unassailable reason to own, enjoy and be proud of a Cadillac again, this is it.

It is safe and rides smooth and is good for trips.

I like it before I stops fast and is a good car for trips and you can give them car washes but they are big car I do not like that.

- Autumn D

It is a good value for money spent love it.

Love my car comfortable luxurious gets good gas mileage dislike nothing about it it is a joy to drive and travel in.

- Cindy C

5 speed and gas mileage. Traction control.

So many options hard to know how to use. Love the options though and especially 4 wheel drive and traction control.
